'w5' no longer does anything when a monster is in sight

When a monster enters your range of sight, pressing 'w5' no longer passes any turns. Makes e.g. resting on the spot and live sacrificing very tedious.

You mean with the "You face a potentially hostile monster"? That's (IIRC) always been the case?

Not really, no. In previous versions, when a nonhostile monster stayed in your visual perimeter and did not come adjacent to you, its movement was allowed by w5, interrupted only if it got next to you. Now, nothing happens even when a monster is on the border of your visual range - actually not even one turn passes when you see a monster.

Actually this one is not fixed - it's still there in 2.3.8.

It doesn't happen always, but
please find attached a case. Pressing 'w5' with the barbarian there did not cause turns to pass.
At least in this case, it seems to occur when the monsters come from the south - I also encountered some monsters from the west where 'w5' worked properly.

EDIT: must have confused myself somehow, it indeed seems to happen every single time. I was no longer able to reproduce the case where it would not have been occurring.

Also still there in 3.0.2.
Not sure if related, but you don't seem to be able to use w5 in ToEF either, even with fire immunity.
